Encouraging Words 11/30/09-BCF Praise Report

Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, everyone one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you WILL RECEIVE the Gift of the Holy Spirit. The Promise
is for YOU and YOUR CHILDREN and for ALL who are far off- for ALL whom the Lord our God will call." Acts 2:38,39

Greetings BCF Family & Friends!

What an awesome and POWERFUL Lord and God we have! He is pouring out His love and the richness of His presence in ever increasing ways- and is showing forth His mighty power in healing peoples hearts and their bodies, and filling us to overflow with His ANOINTING AND GLORY! Praise His WONDERFUL NAME! Jesus!

We had a glorious Thanksgiving weekend and yesterday's worship service was on par with just that- GLORIOUS! It was such a blessing to have Minister Zoila Aguilar with us for the weekend and the workshop she led on moving in the prophetic on Saturday was amazing! Last October, Pastor Doug Sewell came and ministered spiritual gifts to us and activated us, and Saturday, Zoila imparted and instructed us further in the prophetic. It was so exciting to witness the Saints 'getting it' and stepping out in their faith to let the Holy Spirit use them in greater ways than ever before! I'm telling you Church- the Saints Movement is HERE and even greater things are ahead for us all! Thank you Minister Zoila- we love you and we VALUE YOU and the ANOINTING on your life!!!

Yesterday's worship service was just incredible and after Zoila preached on "The Anointing & The Glory"- altar ministry time was just incredible! Everyone recieved!! We were blessed to welcome two first time guests, Nolan and Mawchelle; We also welcomed back Sister Pam S. from Roanoke, and of course- Brother Freddy! We pray that each of them were blessed and refreshed and hope they will come be a regular part of BCF. God is MOVING in this Church!

As we enter into the Advent/Christmas Season- our focus is on Jesus and growing in the GIFT of the Holy Spirit which we have received! The Holy Spirit is a PERSON! He has a character, He has a nature, He has feelings, and He is EVERYTHING we need to grow in grace and walk in Divine POWER to reach the lost and heal the sick! Too many of us have received Jesus Christ as our Savior, but have not been taught or mentored in how to walk in the Spirit! Many still have not been Baptized in the Holy Spirit and received the GIFTS of the Spirit! WE NEED THAT- and God WANTS US to have that! The Apostle Paul said, "If we will walk in the Spirit, we'll not fulfill the lusts of our flesh"- causing us to stumble in sin and hinder our relationship with the Holy Spirit! But praise God, if we will admit our sin and confess our sorrow for doing it- the Word says in 1st John 1:8-9 that He is faithful and just to forgive us and CLEANSE US CONTINUALLY of all unrighteousness!! (Go read that in the Amplified Bible!) The Holy Spirit is the One our Heavenly Father sent to strengthen and empower us to live a Godly life and to be His witnesses!

So today, make a decision. Decide that you are going to set your heart and your mind on Jesus- and tell somebody about Him and what He has done for you! It's Christmas time, the season of giving- let's give JESUS and make a way for Him to give the GIFT of the Holy Spirit to everyone we tell about Him! There is no better Gift that we could ever give to someone!! If you haven't yet received the Gift of the Holy Spirit in ALLLLL of His fullness- then what are you waiting for!??! God has an awesome GIFT with your name on it! Open your heart, open your mind, and open your mouth and ASK for your Present!! If you need help in doing that, we're here for you!

We request prayer for next Saturday, December 5th, 8 AM- 12 PM est, as BCF's Helping Hands Ministry prepares our sandwich ministry/outreach in Washington, DC. We are praying for Divine Appointments and we sincerely want to bless and love on those in need. So, please hold us up in prayer and come help us out next Saturday if you are in the area and have the time.

Have a wonderful week and remember that you are NOT alone and that you are deeply loved and cared about. We are here for you and we're praying for you! SHALOM!!!!!

In Christ's love and faithful friendship,
Brother Ap Dale
